morning from the results of a new abc news/"washington post" poll. abc's karen travers joins us from washington with details. good morning, karen. >> reporter: good morning, rob. our new poll shows president obama has a comfortable lead over republican front-runner mitt romney in the race for the white house. among all americans, 51% said they'd pick president obama over romney. that's a good sign for president obama. just a month ago they were in a dead heat. another good number for the president, he's seen as more willing to compromise when it comes to the contentious budget and deficit reduction issue. but back in that republican field for republican voters, mitt romney is still on top. he gets 26% support. his next closest competitor, sarah palin, who, of course, is still not a candidate. rounding out the top five minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann, texas congressman ron paul and texas governor rick perry who is also not yet in the race. romney's position increases slightly if sarah palin does not enter this race, so you can predict they might not want her to get in. t
